Welcome to Orcival
Snoozing soundly between Puy de Dôme and Le Mont-Dore, dinky Orcival is best known for its formidable 12th-century basilica. Relics of the Virgin Mary drew pilgrims to Orcival centuries before the basilica was built but it was a 12th-century icon, the Virgin of Orcival, that cemented the village's status as a pilgrimage site. The statue continues to be the focus of veneration each Ascension Day.
